Zelda may use the Vitality Sensor, Miyamoto hints

Nintendo may utilize its mysterious Wii Vitality Sensor in the new Zelda game; it’s a very real possibility, mastermind Shigeru Miyamoto said at the BAFTA videogame awards last week.

“Whenever we are going to use any new device it is possible to expand the appeal to those who are new to the videogaming world. At the same time, however, it is also fun to think of ways in which we might apply that new technology to existing forms of gameplay,” he said, “just like the way we are working on the new Legend of Zelda together with Wii Motion Plus.”

The famed designer stopped just short of confirming the actual inclusion of the device, but did give an interesting example of how it could be used, saying, “…as you become more scared, the enemies become even tougher.”
